Our band is playing a BotB at the recording studio where we rehearse. The first round 2 bands are pulled out a hat, they play one song, the winner goes through to the next round. The 2nd round they play two songs etc..

There are 4 rounds, and we're having trouble deciding what songs to play when.

Here is a list of the songs we can play:

Drowning Pool - Bodies (thinking of starting this first, good idea?)
Black Sabbath - Paranoid (Thinking of saving this for later rounds)
Trivium - Pull Harder on the Strings of your Martyr
Trivium - Dying in your Arms
Trivium - Anthem (We are the Fire)
Animals - House of the Rising Sun
Metallica - For Whom the Bell Tolls
Metallica - Master of Puppets

And two of our own songs, one a metal song and the other a slow song

What do you guys think? What songs do you think we should we play and in which rounds?

Thanks

I'd play "Battery" as an ending song to get the crowd going.

I'd play an impressive song in the first round.

You should play Altered Boy by exodus if you can find the tabs anywhere.

And if you do, give me them because I can't.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

Don't have time to learn new songs, it's next week and we can probably only fit one practice in before it

paranoid by sabbath is a killer song, one of my favorites to play, and you should probably save that for last- cuz the solo in that song sounds insane (buts not that hard)
house of the rising sun is an awesome song too- but i'd play that first, its a classic and has a good beat

keep jammin, man

Not entirely sure. I'd go for something well-known but fairly challenging. Try Number Of The Beast or Run To The Hills or something. Master Of Puppets or Enter Sandman wouldn't be too bad either.

Yeah, do the best song you can play first, maybe leave one of your own for a later round.
Perhaps Master of Puppets as a starter?

Whatever you do make sure to move and get the crowd involved. THAT, will make all the difference.

You're at a battle of a band that allows covers? That blows, but use Master of Puppets.


Yeah, but it isn't really a big thing, just a small competition between the young bands that rehearse and record there

oh and the winners get a free day's recording
